We’ve been busily brewing new beers over the last month here at Neepsend. First up was Hop Rocket IPA – a bold and seriously hoppy Red Rye IPA brewed with Australian Galaxy and Topaz hops. The beer was the winning entry from a competition held at the Sheaf View and Blake Hotel for customers to submit ideas for a beer and the winning entrants, Victoria and Jay, came and helped out (read: did all the hard work and dug out he mash tun!) on the brew day.
Sharpshoter, another new beer, is a 4.7% NZ Pale hopped with fabulous Nelson Sauvin and Pacific Jade hops. It’s dry, sharp and crisp with distinctive fruity white wine notes from the Nelson Sauvin and has flown out and been very well received.
Undine, a 4.2% Oatmeal pale ale hoped with Sorachi Ace and Calypso is making it’s way out into pubs. Expect smoothness and body from the oats and coconut, lemon and pear notes from the hops.
Next up will be a (rare for us) return to a beer we’ve brewed before: Triton, a 4.5% pale ale triple hopped with Citra. Cascade and Chinook and this time round with added dry hops.
Following that, look out for something tasty using the Mosaic hops we’ve been saving for a rainy day…
